Night Editor-TH N. 11OtNBERGER
Custom does not always suffice-oc-
casionally it is necessary to legislate
in order to maintain a gentleman's
agreement. It has heni heretofore ai
unwritten law in Washington that a
member of Congress should not be
interested financially, in any way, in
any legislation pending before the
national government.
It is trtue that members of 'on-
gress often (10 receive remuneration
for(delivering addresses between ses-
sions, but such proceeure is, how
ever, concerned on l with orgniza-
ions of a local nat ure. Sen. Jamies A.
Reed, lDemocrat, Missouri who 'ap-

astounding fact- -the realization that

ional legislation is supposedl to be car-
ried on by men who, after listening
to the facts, will vote according to
the dictates of reason. This cannot
be the case at the present time -
employes are by necessity partial to
the views of their employers.
Suppose that the banlkr associa-
tion or the steel trust paid menbers
of Congress to speak ini its behaf.
Would such a condition lbe tolerated
by the people of the nation? Hardly.
Yet the Anti-Saloon league is the only
national organization violating the
rules of decorum, and it is able to do
so because of a sentimental back-

have given way before the oened shirt

historical facts do not entirely war-

ture" of the fountders wvas not madle
with an idea, of establishing "'the
land of the free.'' They wantted to
be free to follow the dictates of theiri
own conscienctes, but they were niot
disposed, with certaln isola ted excep-
tios, to give like freedom to those
wtho did not agree with them.-
